Making Artist’s Books: Join me!

Even though it’s not till the end of the month, I’m really looking forward to this new bookbinding class I’ll be teaching at CBBAG; ‘End to End Artist’s Books’!

What: ‘End to End Artist’s Book’, a bookbinding workshop
When: Saturday September 3 – Sunday October 1: 10am – 5pm both days

Cozy Journals

Autumn is my favourite season, full of colour and beauty.  I love the crispness in the air (it’s the only time of year I actually eat apples, preferably right from the tree).  And, of course, it means that my sketching and journalling habits start changing to an indoors activity.

I know I’ve said this before, but I just love the tactile quality fabric-covered journals offer.  For example, the journals pictured above are all covered in plaid fabric and paired with reclaimed leather and brass closures.  They are cozy and soft, perfect for Autumn notes!
